Trail Run at Forrest Park Nature Center

For day three of training, I ran three miles at Forrest Park Nature Center.

I love running on trails. At this point I plan to try to do a lot of my training runs on trails. The softer surface is easier on my joints, and the varied terrain strengthens more muscles. I run at a much slower pace on trails, but the level of exertion is probably about the same as running a bit faster on roads. I'm not concerned about pace at this point anyway, and running more slowly gives me more time to enjoy views like these:
